“ISIS: It’s Always the Last Place You Look!” Dept. While Facebook’s “algorithms” are working 24/7 to censor conservative comments and pro-life videos, they seem to have developed a bit of a blind spot when it comes to removing pro-ISIS terrorist pages. According to a report on terrorism on social media by the National Whistleblower Center, “Nearly 200 auto-generated business pages for the Islamic State were recently identified” on Facebook, “and dozens more pages for other terrorist groups including Al Qaeda and Ansar Al Sharia remain on the site.” Maybe someone should tell Facebook that they’re also sexist and violently anti-gay, and then maybe they’d do something about removing them

A new flag
By Mike Huckabee
Stop the presses! Leftists have finally found an American flag they’ll actually run up the flagpole and salute!
Of course, it’s not the real flag of the United States of America so much as the official flag of Fantasyland, but it’s a start. Two great points in this story: First, to these people, Betsy Ross’ 13-star flag is an affront to what America stands for, but their own presumptuous and delusional 51-star vandalism of the flag is perfectly okay.
Second, they love to claim that the Founders “never could have imagined” whatever the situation is that they think justifies them shredding the Constitution. But the Founders imagined exactly what would happen if the national capital, with its eventual and inevitable concentration of powerbrokers, pocketliners and fourflushers, had the powers of a state, and that’s why they specifically barred that and put it under the jurisdiction of Congress.
On the bright side, I’m sure they’ll defend me if I take a knee when they raise their flag.
A new Rambo movie
By Mike Huckabee
Sylvester Stallone’s new movie “Rambo: Last Blood” is being savaged by liberal critics for reminding them of President Trump (I’m sure Trump will LOVE that yuuuugely.) In the movie, Rambo faces off against vicious and violent Mexican drug gangs, which is… well, I want to say “perfectly realistic,” but the critics say, “problematic.” The movie apparently is racist because it doesn’t show us the murderous drug gangsters’ warm and fuzzy side of the story.
To show how hilariously clueless they are, their reviews that accuse Stallone of being out of touch are, like the reviews for Dave Chappelle’s recent PC-shredding Netflix comedy special, 180-degrees out of alignment with the audience. At the movie review site RottenTomatoes.com, the new “Rambo” movie has a dismal 31% approval rating from critics and 84% from moviegoers.
These kind of scolding leftist reviews are tiresome and annoying for most people who are just looking for some entertainment instead of a lecture about how lacking in wokeness they are, but I read an interesting observation about them from Matt Stone, co-creator of the longtime PC-smashing cartoon series, “South Park.” Stone said he doesn’t take those reviews seriously. He assumes that the critics are terrified that if they don’t toe the PC line, the Twitter mob will turn on them and they’ll be publicly savaged and lose their jobs. So he reads their reviews the same way you’d read a hostage note, assuming the writer is being forced to say that.
Still, every so often, one of them inadvertently says something interesting. Like the one who sniped that this movie is so Trumpian that Rambo’s macho catchphrase before he smokes the bag guys might as well be, “I AM the wall!” Kudos to a brilliant idea! Stallone should immediately add that to the posters. It would sell 63 million tickets.
##Appellation##, I wanted to make sure you also read these comments:
If you’ve given more than half a million dollars to Democratic groups, but are also accused of being a pervert who has killed young black men by injecting them with meth to get a sick sexual thrill, what does that make you, in the eyes of the New York Times? If you guessed “a small-time Democratic donor,” go to the head of the class.
Since it’s the weekend and I’m sure you’d love a little entertainment with your politics to help you decompress, watch this Congressional hearing video of black conservative Candace Owens utterly dismantling an alleged university “expert” on white supremacy (who is herself white) who tried to imply that Owens somehow inspires white supremacist violence and laughs at its victims. Pop some popcorn before watching this.
